The “HANGMAN” can hit.

Many of the thousands watching Daniel Hooker in action in Las Vegas will know him only as a mixed martial artist. But complimenting his skill at take down and choke outs is his very good striking game. We in NZ know this fact because his King in the Ring title is well known in this country. What may not be so well known is that Daniel had competed in a four man contest previously. Well sort of. It started off as a fourman but the final was never held, as Brendan Varty, who won his first fight couldn’t take his place in the final. On the other side of the draw was non other than Daniel Hooker having his first Muay Thai fight. His opponent was Te Maia Jones.
